"The title of this exhibition reflects my interest in polymorphism as a key narrative and aesthetic feature of vernacular sculptural practices across South Asia, particularly within Hindu mythologies. While I continue to reference imagery of Japanese Nio guardians as well as Hindu Dvarapala door gate guardians, my influences are diverse. A range of global sources that link to my cultural background, the language of religious iconographies and contemporary culture at large continue to inform my imagery."
